New Bedford

Residents woke up Wednesday to a blanket of fluffy snow across Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.

West Glocester had 12.2 inches of snow, according to unofficial report from the National Weather Service. Cranston reported about 7 inches.

On the South Coast, the weather service said 10 to 11 inches of snow fell in Fall River and New Bedford.{} Up to 18 inches of snow fell in Plymouth County.

The morning commute was slow as many roads were still snow covered and slippery. Rhode Island State Police reported 40 accidents on the state's highways since Tuesday afternoon.

T.F. Green and Logan airports urged travelers to check with their airlines, but nearly all arriving and departing afternoon flights were on schedule at Green.

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority said six bus routes were being detoured Wednesday until further notice because of the storm. Amtrak said it was running fewer trains in the Northeast Corridor.

National Grid reported only a handful outages early Wednesday. National Grid customers can call 1-800-465-1212 to report power outages. NSTAR customers can report power outages at 1-800-592-2000.
